PFP - Books!!

This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to join in the Quixotic Paperie Anniversary Blog Hop.

Passion For Promarkers


Week number two for me at Passion For Promarkers and Wow, what a week!!  Didn't you all just love the free rein that the Anything Goes theme gave you - guess that prize list had something to do with it too! Can't wait to see who wins! 

Anyway onto this week's challenge which has been set by my fabbie new teamie, Andie with the theme of books.
I've used this gorgeous Lili of the Valley image which I've had an age but have only just coloured!!  Oops!!  Of course it was just calling to me for this theme!!  The sentiments are K&Co as are the flower embellies!  The old fashioned library card is a stamp that again has been in my stash for ages and had to be used (OH is a librarian but doesn't read books!)!!  I've also used 7 Gypsies and Die Crafts With a View Once Upon a Time  script papers.  Finally the leaves were made with a Sizzix die - I rather think the girlies are reading Jack and the Beanstalk judging by the size of these leaves, LOL!  Lots of distressing with Tim Holtz Crackle Paints and Distress Inks - just to add to the old fashioned feel! 

This week we're being sponsored by Stampeezee with a £10 voucher to spend at their on-line store!  Don't forget to visit all the other new (and old) PFP ladies - and I shall look forward to visiting you to see your takes on the theme!!
